Join renowned bird expert, author and public radio host Laura Erickson and other naturalists on an exceptional birding adventure for beginning and intermediate birders. Explore unique habitats in search of common and rare birds, and add new finds to your life list. Laura will show you how to improve your birding skills while walking the area’s finest trails. On canoe outings, observe water birds and behaviors. Learn how to identify warblers, raptors, waterfowl and other species that call the north woods home. This is a special opportunity to learn from one of the most beloved experts in the world of birding.


Highlights

• Witness loons and eagles while canoeing pristine lakes with minimal human activity.
• View many colorful warblers that call the Northwoods their summer home.
• Explore a northern quaking bog – an experience many equate to walking on a giant waterbed – and learn about the special plants and animals that reside in it.
